New openSUSE Chairman Speaks About Future Goals

Filed under
SUSE

The openSUSE Linux distribution has seen some big changes in recent months. And more may be on the way, according to the project’s new chairman, Vincent Untz. Here’s what he had to say in a recent interview about openSUSE’s goals for the future.

Back in the summer, openSUSE faced a bit of a crisis as developers delayed a release target date and raised questions about the project’s overall direction. But things have been looking brighter since then. openSUSE 12.2 was released earlier in September 2012, introducing a string of new features. And just last week, Alan Clark, director of Industry Initiatives, Emerging Standards and Open Source at SUSE (the company that develops SUSE Linux Enterprise and is a major backer of openSUSE) and chairman of the board at openSUSE, was elected chairman of the newly formed OpenStack Foundation.
